    I am having such a great few days , I had my week eight WI and have lost 3 stone from 24 March to 24 May and just had to let you all know how thrilled I was yesterday, when I discovered I was a size 18 ! I nearly fell over, when I dared to try on a size 18 pair of jeans and they fit! I went mad and bought then even though I vowed I wouldnt spend lots of dosh on clothes untill I was at goal, but I literlly have no trousers to wear because they were falling down all the time and hunching them up all the time does not look very ladylike or attractive(think buildersbum and you have the idea!) I avoided going shopping becuase I didnt want to try on and be dissapointed that I still couldnt get into the clothes I like.
    I have been wearing all the same clothes I have always worn and the tops are loose but not unacceptable (made me realise they must have been bloomin tight when i was 3 stone heavier!)
    I havent worn jeans for over ten years and being a size 22 24 depending whether post binge or post diet I more or less had to buy everything from Evans and I hated the prices and the lack of choice and sometimes dubious quality.
    I guess I just wanted to have more choice and be able to actaully shop for clothes like smaller people, and I feel so liberated and young again!
    I know I still have a way to go (4 stone) but I now for the first time feel as if I can be a slim person , not destined to be a fat, frumpy, middle -aged, invisible woman indefinately.

    I never thought it possible because I considered myself a hopeless case, but this diet really is changing the way I view myself and its great!
    just thought this might inspire others who are the start of thier journey , keep it up soon be feeling like me GREAT!!!!
    Love Carole

    Hi Carole,
    Well done and I'm not surprised you had to buy those jeans ... what an incentive.
    I'm so looking forward to being able to buy in 'normal' shops too. Evans was great but it'll be even greater to pass it by evey time I go looking for clothes. Hasn't happened yet to me but I know it will in time.
    Happy clothes hunting Carole xx

    Well done Carole, I know what you mean.
    I'm now officially overweight, just got into the size 16's & in the 12 stones. (top end)
    I love looking in normal clothes shops, knowing that I can fit into their clothes, I don't want to ever go in Evans again.
    I can't stop buying clothes for the next size down.
    I've still got 3 stone to go & feel the same, I will not ever be fat again. I'm so glad to have found this diet.

    Well done & keep going.

    wow, what a brilliant feeling! I can't wait!
    I am still getting used to the idea that I am 3 stone lighter, I pick up clothes and assume they won't fit... and then find out they do!
